SOURCE: want to replace the trim/tilt motors on my 1995

no. a unmodified transom bracket may need to be moved not removed. Since the tilt motor is out you will need to manually lift the engine. you can see the picture diagram at www.yamaha-motor.com. click on outboard motors,parts and service, view parts catalog. find your year make and model by following steps listed at top. select power trim and tilt assembly. in the picture you will see the location of the Manuel release valve on the starboard side. turn the Manuel release valve then lift the engine. tie it up or use a stand to keep it up,do not use the tilt lock. with the engine in full tilt position, you can see the motor. some brackets are modified were you can remove the motor without moving the transom bracket. If unmodified you'll need to follow these steps. (1) lower the engine back down.the steering arm needs to be removed from the steering cable and swung forward. do not remove steering arm from engine. on the starboard side of the engine you will see the steering cable going into the steering cable tube. (2)a 1 1/6 nut secures the cable to that tube remove it and slide cable out do not remove it.(3) lift engine again and secure it. your about to remove the motor mount bolt so make sure you secure the motor completely (4)remove upper and lower transom to bracket bolts remove bolts on the port side only.(5) you will see three bolt that go through the transom bracket to the trim and tilt assembly. remove them.(6) if all bolts are removed you will be able to slide the port transom bracket to the left out of the way(7) remove tilt/trim motor.

SOURCE: replace water pump impellor 15hp yamaha outboard

Put the motor in neutral.On the leg of the motor there is a little side cover plate.Remove.Undo the bolts.This is the gear change linkage.At the cavitation plate,there is 4 bolts.Remove.If the lower housing does not drop,give it a soft whack with a soft hammer.When dropped,you will see the prop shaft and the gear linkage.Lower it all the way out.Its easy to work on if you put the lower skeg in a vice.Take the water pump apart BUT!!! have a look at which way the impellar blades are pointed.Grease the new impellar as you put it back in and turn it at the same time to get the nodes in properly.Heaps of grease to protect all the bolts.Makes it easier next time.Hope this helps

I have a mercury 75hp outboard ser#OD020354 would like to know what year the motor is


QUESTION:
How can I determine when my outboard was built?
ANSWER:
Every Mercury outboard has a serial number label located on the transom bracket area of the engine. The latest serial number labels display a 2-digit number in a box at the lower right portion of the label. These digits coincide with the last two digits of the year in which the outboard was manufactured. For example, if an outboard was manufactured in 2010, the number "10" would appear in the box at the lower right portion of the label.

  1. Fuel
    • A common problem with an easy solution, Yamaha boat engine trouble could arise due to inadequate levels of fuel or engine oil. All Yamaha outboards take unleaded gasoline as a main fuel source with a pump octane rating of 86 or higher. The type of engine oil varies according to motor size and can be found in the "Specifications" section of a particular outboard's owner's manual (See Resources).
    Electrical
    • Problems with the electrical system can also prevent a Yamaha outboard's engine from working correctly. Troubleshoot the electrical system, first removing the main fuse that's located underneath the electrical panel on any electric-starting outboard. If the connection at the center of the fuse is broken, it must be replaced by a fuse of the same amperage. The battery should also be removed, cleaned and fully charged when troubleshooting the electrical system.

    Spark Plugs
    • Owners should also remove and inspect the spark plugs during the troubleshooting process. If the insulator tip of any plug is burned, that spark plug should be replaced. The number and type of spark plug depends on the specific outboard. Additionally, owners should ensure that each spark plug gap is set to the width stipulated in the owner's manual (see Resources).
